Anaheim Ducks reassign goal-scoring D Alex Grant, C Steckel, D Yonkman to AHL Norfolk

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Anaheim Ducks defenceman Alex Grant has been reassigned to the minors despite scoring a goal on each of his first two NHL shots.

The Pacific Division-leading Ducks also reassigned centre David Steckel and defenceman Nolan Yonkman to their Norfolk AHL affiliate.

Grant scored a goal in his NHL debut on Nov. 30, and he added another in the Ducks' victory over Minnesota on Wednesday night. He has two goals on two shots in his first two NHL appearances.

The Ducks are hoping defenceman Francois Beauchemin returns from an injury for their next game Sunday against Edmonton. Anaheim defencemen Luca Sbisa, Sheldon Souray and Mark Fistric also are out with injuries.

Steckel is scoreless in four games with Anaheim this season, but coach Bruce Boudreau has praised the veteran's play.
